Are you uninsured?

  • If you are uninsured, testing is free and covered by the National Disaster Medical System.
  • There are strict laws in place that protect the confidentiality of your visit. Immigration law enforcement is prohibited from conducting arrests in health care facilities, such as hospitals, health clinics, and urgent care facilities except in very limited circumstances.
